Presentation skills: Public Speaking Project

Tomsk State University via Coursera

Overview

Everything comes together in the Capstone: story, slides and delivery. You will draft a complete script of your presentation. With the advice of your peer readers, you will revise, rewrite, and complete it. Then the same thing will happen with your slides. And finally you will deliver it to a real audience recording it on camera and get valuable feedback from your peers.

We highly suggest not to do a «fake project», but choose a topic that matters to you, so in the end you will have a polished presentation of something that is important to you. Whether it is an idea, a business project, a product or some other complicated matter.

If you are to revise some other work, please, write with an intention to help. Say what a peer should stop or start doing, add or remove from their script or slides.

  • Firas completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    This course is suitable for those who have a fear of speaking in front of the audience. I have learned in compliance with some other courses from this speciaization (Speechwriting and Storytelling and Designing Presentation Slides) that you can deal with almost any trouble that occurs when you deliver your speech. That's why I love this course!

  • Sedef Fusun completed this course, spending 7 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.

    Not bad. I had some problem with understanding the tasks sometimes but guys in the forum helped me figure out. Oc ourse, it's better to take the courses from the whole specialization. I like the idea of sharing my projects with everyone. Thanks to the creators!

    I was afraid I wouldn't be able to afford spending a lot of time on this project because it demands recording videos, etc. but it's okay because it absorbed me and I got hooked on it quickly. Nice course for those who seek professionalism.

    It's the most serious course in the series Presentation Skills. I find it quite challenging but it motivates me at the same time. I would recommend it to those who have enough time and are ready to do the tasks in real life.

    I have started the first course of the specialization 2 years ago. The 4 courses are quite challenging, especially this one with the real-life presentation. I learned so much with these courses, I am now able to do excellent slides and good presentations. I am now the go-to guy in the office if my colleagues want to improve their presentation. I highly recommend this specialization, it is very tangible and well taught.

    I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Coursera. I have loved the learning I have been able to do and look forward to taking many more classes with them. I have always been interested in Presentation Skills: Public Speaking Project and Coursera has given me the chance to take the classes that really interest me. I don't understand the reviews with low ratings. I have never had any problems with them.

    It was definitely not a piece of cake. I hope I will eventually show my skills not online but in real life.
    1) good choice of material
    2) interesting ideas for tasks
    but I would recommend those who just started to finish first at least the course Effective presentation delivery.
    All in all, it was a nice experience! Thanks to the creators for this good idea!

    The course was very nice. It was a challenging task. The peer grade assignments are very nice. When we review it gives the experience. We find the common mistakes done by others. So it helps to improve ourselves. I learned how to record a presentation with the talking head. It's very nice. The freedom that has been given is very nice.

    There are no material provided or skills to learn as promised in the very beginning of the course.
    It mainly depends on the peers review and that is not enough because we don't already know the main skills that we have to apply on our Power Point presentation

    To be honest, I was scared at first to do stuff like recording my performance life, etc. but ..who knew it would be a huge boost to fighting my stage fright? Very nicely made, the course is simply designed but not all minds can fit. Seriously, good luck.

    This course was good for making my confidence grow. I liked the way the tasks are made but sometimes they need special circumstances. It could be also good to include more materials. But the overall impression is good. Nice job!

    This is has been a great experience. I feel very confident to record and present things especially the assignment for the fifth week was excellent. There was minimum instructions and more of self learning. Thank you very much.

    This course was excellent. It was well pit together. The every week assignments help gained confidence. The last two assignments helped with delivering your speech. I enjoyed this to the fullest.
